Saturday shopping

June 2nd, 2018 at 07:25 pm

Busy day running errands today. I did some grocery shopping today as well as a Target run for a few household items that I needed. I tried to be very mindful of the new budget I've given myself and I think I did an OK job.

My first stop was at the supermarket. They had a few things on sale that I wanted to pick up and I was able to find coupons for the other things I needed. Before savings my bill as 110.26. I saved 38.91 by using my store bonus card and 4.50 using coupons bringing my total to 67.09. I got milk, bread, eggs, 5 sirloin steaks, cereal, apple sauce, cheese sticks, cottage cheese, veggies, baked beans, Gatorade and some chips for lunches.

This particular grocery store gives discounts on gas so I managed to get 10 cents off each gallon. I needed gas so I stopped on my way out and filled up my SUV for 51.12.

Next I went to Target and picked up some storage bags, garbage bags, some frozen chicken nuggets, chicken strips and frozen tilapia. I got $10 in gift cards for a future purchase and I used 2 gifts cards ($15) that I had previously earned towards this trip bringing my total to 31.62.

So I have 101.29 left in my grocery budget and 48.88 left in my gas budget. I think I can make it until the 15th with this Smile

I completed 3 mystery shops between yesterday and today. Just finished submitting my reports. I have 3 lined up for tomorrow. It's good to be busy! My neighbor asked if my husband and son would weed her garden - they went over today to do it and I helped out too. She offered to pay us so I figured I would pitch in and help. She will be coming over with the money tomorrow.

I have more clothes to get together tomorrow to drop off at the consignment store as well as make homemade applesauce with apples I have before they go bad and complete my mystery shops. It's shaping up to be a very busy weekend!
